with police. law enforcement fills say that both are from the russian region near chechnya and have been living in the united states with family members for about a decade. their estranged uncle spoke if maryland a short time ago. >> jihad, turn yourself in. and act forgiveness. if the injured, and those who left, ask forgiveness from these people. if we're ashamed, people are ashame on the family, our family, you put shame on 9 entire chechen. >> across boston, an unprecedented situation. the entire city and metropolitan area, all surrounding suburbs effectively shut down. all mass transit suspended. no a no-fly zone in effect. people have been told to stay inside their homes. >> keep the doors locked, do not open the door unless there is a uniformed, identified law enforcement officer on other side of it, requesting to come inside. >> there have been victims, police say that the bombing suspect shot and killed, 26-year-old sean collier. an m.i.t. patrol officer around 10:30 on campus last night. a short time later, they reportedly carjacked a mercedes suv in cambridge. that led to a po
. there are many, many unanswered questions tonight, including unconfirmed reports on devices found. law enforcement officials have not confirmed that there were other unsploided bombs. the official confirmation is that there were two devices. to the extent that there were other devices today, isolated and treated in some way by law enforcement, those may have been devices that were investigated as suspect packages and done away with by law enforce. . no arrests have been made. the investigation is now being headed by the fbi in conjunction with other federal and state and local agencies. i want to bring in a young man who is an eyewitness. he was eating with co-workers when he heard the first explosion. so you're about 100 yards away. what did you hear? >> bewere inside the restaurant. heard the first explosion. kind of shook the building a little bit. we kind of wondered what it was. looked outside and saw some smoke. actually ran outside. then the second one blew up about 100 yards from us. >> did they sound like they were about the same size? >> the first one sounded small, because i
saw, david, that law enforcement is asking the public for help in the form of videos, photos, anything. do you have any sense of what kind of response they're getting? >> they're getting a great response. there are hundreds and thousands of pictures and videos that were taken. you know, the social media since 9/11 has expanded. everybody has phones and cameras now and so this is going to taken a enormous amount of work if they're trying to go through these. this could be very complicated. some people suggest it indicates that they don't have a lot of leads otherwise. but certainly that's one thing that they're looking for. >> brown: speaking of 9/11, i wonder just tell -- give us a sense of the mood there today and maybe you can compare it to what happened after 9/11. >> absolutely. i remember 9/12 and 9/12 was a day much like today: brilliant sky, warm. in 2001 on 9/11 boston was a crime scene that had no evidence, there were no victims here and so it had been robbed in that sense. today just the opposite. a terrible number of victims and a lot of devastation at that scene. >> brown:
, and it does appear according to nbc news sources in law enforcement, that there is some video of somebody placing a black bag or a dark bag at the site near the site of the explosions. we should caution that there may have been a lot of people placing bags on the ground, as they come to watch runners pass the finish line. that may not have been the bomb at all. but if you are an investigator trying to get to the bottom of this, that's someone opportunity to talk to. and what law enforcement sources are telling us is that there are a lot of people now that they want to talk to based on all of this evidence. but with everybody, world media here, law enforcement agencies from around the country, really lacking at this, there are a lot of -- there's a lot of information that's flying around and a lot o opportunipportuniti to conclusions. that appears to be what happened. nonetheless, they've made some tremendous strides. we can see that based on what we're looking at on the ground since the attacks on monday afternoon. guys? >> a great rundown, scott, of what we know and don't know at this po
explosive devices. found on or near the scene of the bombings today. law enforcement officials have not confirmed that there were other unexploded bombs for lack of a less specific but more politic term. as of tonight the official confirmation is that there were two devices. only two. those were the two that caused the massive explosions. to the extent that there were other devices today, isolated and treated in some way by law enforcement, those may have been devices that were investigated as suspect packages, as potential bombs and done away with by law enforcement in the sometimes explosive way they do that. there are no suspects as of this evening. no arrests have been made. the investigation is now being headed by the fbi in conjunction with other federal and state and local agencies. i want to bring in now a young man today who is an eyewitness to what happened today. jared walker. he was eating with co-workers from ibm at a restaurant a football field's length of way when he heard the first explosion. thanks for being here. you're 100 yards away. what was it like watching? >>
have the right to romaine silent. anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. this is what is infuriating. he's just beginning to communicate. what information does he have? is there an ongoing threat he knows about? is there foreign connections, foreign links we don't know about? are we going to give him miranda rights at this point in time? go ahead. >> it seems like we've got plenty just on face value to actually prosecute him. we don't really need an admission. but to advise him of his miranda rights, we hear that he was advised today of his miranda rights. how did he respond? did he say he wanted to remain silent or did he waive that and he wants to talk without his attorney present? the interesting part about miranda is once you give somebody miranda they say i want to be silent, you cannot constantly go back to the well and keep asking them do you want to talk now, do you want to talk now? they have to contact you to make it within miranda. outside of miranda you can say, well, off-the-record, outside of your miranda warnings, things that we can't prose
were the law enforcement officials doing their job. so you have a community that is very much cooperating with law enforcement in this lockdown. everybody understands the importance and the need to stay out of the way and let the officials do their job, as they go literally door to door to juror, to try to find this 19-year-old suspect. so, yes, this has been a day like no other. i can guarantee you, in the city metropolitan area around boston. >> and the thinking, bill, in terms of going door to door, the thinking is, perhaps someone is hiding them in their homes? it's quite fascinating that the police are going door to door in all of these homes in that region. >> the thinking, maria, is that this 19-year-old may be holding somebody hostage in their home. you're not supposed to open the door to anybody unless they identify themselves clearly as a law enforcement official. so it is clear, they are still going door to door, and it is possible, they believe, that this 19-year-old chechen could be holding somebody hostage or could be on the move and trying to, you know, find a l
times writing about what he called immigration fear. country and stronger role of law, passed copperheads of reform. -- past comprehensive reform. then there is this summary from the new york times editorial. there is a better way to be safer. pass an immigration bill if terrorists, drug traffickers, and gang bangers with sharp meters in the immigrant haystack, then shrink the haystack. get 11 million people on the books, find out who they are. the issueur calls on of boy scouts of america we welcome jim to the conversation from oklahoma. good morning. the gay crowd wants to push how they live on uni. they should be able to decide their own rules and the government should be completely out of it. just like the gay marriage thing. if they want to get married, fine. if a certain church doesn't want to marry them, then so be it. the government should stay out of the whole issue. that's it. host: part of the debate this week on what to do with the alleged bomber involved in the killing of three bostonians over this past week. the headline, republicans want the boston bombing suspe
these photos of what remains of a pressure cooker which was used as the delivery device for the explosives. law enforcement sources tell nbc news the bombs were built to act like homemade ieds. sources tell nbc news the bombs included a battery pack and "the boston globe" reports investigators recovered a part of a circuit board at the scene. the bombs were packed with scha shrapnel. the bomb was not capable of creating a massive blast. instead, its main purpose was to maim and injure. photos obtained by whdh in boston showed the area where the bomb was left moments before and moments after the detonation. the fbi is looking at these photos and others like them for clues as to who placed the bombs and when. now there is precedent for devices like these. in 2004, the fbi sent out a memo on the use of homemade pressure cooker bombs. al qaeda's online magazine gave instructions for making them just last month and in the 2010 attempted attack on times square, one of the devices found included a pressure cooker and 125 firecrackers. meanwhile, the search of an apartment belonging to a foreign studen
. they plastered their pictures distributed by law enforcement among themselves and meanwhile, they have identified two potential suspects captured on surveillance videos taken before the deadly blast. the part about officials having identified two suspects turns out to be correct but the two young men were not those suspects. fbi assistant john miller was quick to debunk the photos like the high school kid in the "new york post" showing how this latest journal malfeasance came to be. >> i've seen a couple pictures on the internet and in the paper today. until we hear from authorities, should we discount pictures floating around all over the place? >> those are not pictures that will be released today by authorities. >> just wondering. >> here's what happens. those pictures were on the internet yesterday morning and they started going viral in deficit sites and difference infusion places pick those up, we'll take that information and then it ends up leaking back to the newspaper and comes out in one big circle. >> pictures start on the internet and law enforcement officials pass them internally and
hearing is that it is what's called a bolo, be on the lookout. this was from law enforcement agencies, a law enforcement bulletin given to other investigators and all police in the area to be on the lookout for what they're describing as someone who is dark kskinned, possibly a foreign accent. they have no suspects in custody at this time. this person might have been carrying a black backpack and wearing a sweatshirt and may have been trying to get into the restricted area around where the blast went off before the explosion happened. now doctors are also, according to our sources and information learned by colleagues, are removing ball bearings from some of the people being treated, one of the victims at one of the local 4078hospitals there. this could indicate what the explosive devices were made of. it's described as screwed and sometimes small. there were said to be at least two unexploded devices. my sources are telling me one of the things they're doing, john, are to pick those apart. they would to get the dna evidence for the way they were constructed. as of now, no one is maki
to the apartments in revere. and federal law enforcement, this hour, an indicator he may not be of great investigative e was here on a student visa and didn't provide any hits on a phone terrorist watch list. >> megyn: thank you. >> reporter: you're welcome. >> megyn: tiny pieces of shrapnel may provide biggest clues in the hint for the boston bomber, not long after the blast we heard another piece of key evidence would be the video of the explosions themselves, including the white smoke seen rising after the explosion, that tells us something. experts say it suggests that local products and not military grade explosives were likely used. also, the large pieces of the metal flying, we spot-shadowed them here and we now believe pressure cookers were used to build these bombs and the devices may have been placed in black duffle bags and possibly put on the ground or in the trash cans. my next guest is one of the foremost explosives experts. first working on an army-- as an army bomb disposal technician and special agent with the fbi, here you see some of the investigations in which he too
fellow paramedic was firefighters and law enforcement officers. quinn boyer was 34 years old. >> now to, update the investigation into the bombings of the boston marathon. federal agents scouring the scenes for evidence including picking shrapnel out of walls. a 12 block area downtown is off limits. the death toll sthandz at three, but 22 people are in critical condition tonight. it now appears devices were pressure cooker bombs, household cookers filled with explosives hidden in bags and packed with bebes and nails. police and fire unions are offering a $50,000 reward. among scores of people injured is a boy from the east bay. 11-year-old around hern waiting for his mother to cross when the bomb went off. >> di. and aaron, his sister as well as his dad were near the second explosion. the street where the race finishes is just beyond that barricade. tonight the family is at the hospital by aaron's side. aaron hern is usually an athletic 11-year-old but tonight, he's sedated and was with his dad, allen and little sister waiting for mom, catherine to cross the finish line when the first a
dangerous. no one should approach them. no one should attempt to apprehend them except law enforcement. let me it rate -- reiterate that caution. do not take any action on your own. >> bill, the fbi has already processed thousands of leads and tips and no doubt will get many thousands more. >> indeed. and they are set up for that, we do believe, rick. anything else about these people that people, rather, should pay attention to that you are hearing? >> absolutely. everyone should look at the hats these guys are wearing it's possible that they bought them for that day, monday the attack at the marathon. they should look at the jackets they are wearing. look at the walk. the ones guy's walk might be distinctive to someone as you see them coming down the street. people should remember why the fbi is hunting these two and one of them, again, you can clearly see his profile in one of those photographs. and, by the way, all of those photographs, videos that have been submitted, some people may not have submitted pictures that they thought would not be valuable to the investigation now seeing thes
law enforcement officials would be thinking at this time. >> well, i think the main goal right now is to get this other guy in custody before he hurts anybody else and try to close out the situation. he's a very, very dangerous person. i don't think anyone is safe in that area until he's apprehended. and it sounds to me like he doesn't want to be taken alive. so there could be another chutout before this whole thing is over. >> that's what you speculate because the other suspect had an ied strapped to his chest? >> absolutely. we don't know the whole background on these guys. we don't know what their motive was. we don't know exactly all the things. a lot of it is going to be -- we're going to determine that in the next several hours. but it doesn't sound like they want to be captured or he wants to be captured and go through the justice system. i think he's going to shoot it out within way or the other. >> let me ask you a quick question. can this be done by two individuals? meaning do you need more of a support system to get all of the materials that were clearly required to this
theory? >> well, i think it's out there. i think it's something of a society and certainly the law enforcement and the intelligence community, they clearly know that this is not a hoax. this is not something that somebody is coming up and developing and so forth. those organizations and the type of organizations that are really fertilizing terrorist activities, it's real. and it's real for the united states. i think we've gotten a piece of that here in the last few weeks here, based on the activities that we've taken place there. if you talk to many of the law enforcement people and so forth, they will look back and say, "this had to be an operation by these two young men that was planned and it was worked over years, not over just a few weeks or so, over months and over years that they have been there". >> chief shaffer, a lot of people are saying this, there are 100 agents or more looking for this cell. these two guys couldn't have done it. they are amateurs, what is your take on this? are we going to wake up and find out there was a much bicker conspiracy. >> if you look at what
devastation. it started out as a law enforcement investigation, but as authorities said last night that is likely to change. >> this will be a combined, federal, state and lookal effort. it will be an ongoing investigation, it is a criminal investigation that has the potential -- is a potential terrorist investigation. >> our next news briefing is just minutes away at the bottom of the hour and cnbc will carry at least part of that live. it is going include massachusetts governor deval patrick and the fbi special agent in charge who you just heard of, massachusetts, two u.s. senators are both at the westin hotel behind me and a large amount of media from around the world. everyone asked me the same question, which is why? david? >> thank you very much, scott cohn reporting, of course, from boston. after a very rough monday which sought dow plunge by almost 266 points since the biggest drop in november. futures are on the rebound. better than expected from coca-cola and johnson & johnson, but on the flipside, target warning that its first quarter earnings citing expectations and cit
or perhaps home-grown cell, but a senior law enforcement official says the evidence now is starting to point towards a domestic act of terror. scott. >> pelley: bob thank you. our senior correspondent john miller is a former assistant director of the f.b.i. john, the men do not seem to be doing anything suspicious in these videos, so why does the f.b.i. believe that these are their men? >> reporter: you know, they have other video, including the one bob referenced where they believe they actually have on tape one of the suspects in the white baseball cap putting the bomb down in front of the starbucks at the second oncation. we'reason they selected the ted twre seeg here is they wanted to find the pictures that didn't have the most sinister activity but the pictureshat gave pplthe best chance of recognizing them. >> pelley: and one of the backpacks, we're told, matched from the debris that was recovered. >> reporter: that's right, and it seems to be the same kind of make, year, and mold backpack pell is a little circumstantial but, it's a good pointer. >> pelley: deslauries said in the news
to the bombing in boston. meanwhile, law enforcement officials in massachusetts are combing through more than 2,000 tips, looking through photos like this one, shall shows a bag sitting by a mailbox before the explosion. it is unclear at this point whether or not the bag has any relevance, but appears to be near the center of the explosion. president obama will be in boston tomorrow to attend a memorial service for the victims. for the loved once of those killed and maimed in the explosion, there is only confusion and many unanswered questions. joining me today here in new york city, nbc news capitol hill correspondent luke russert, and misterrorism expert michael leiter, and bob herbert, a distinguished senior fellow at dimos. >>> let's go to kristin welker for more. >> reporter: alex, good afternoon. here's what we know at this hour. this letter was received yesterday at an off-site mail facility. i want to emphasize that. it did not get close to the white house. it's typical for letters sent to this facility to undergo a screening. during that process, it was discovered that a letter address
will prosecute this terrorist through our civil system of justice. underu.s. law, the united states citizens can not be tried rather in military commissions. martha: but house armed services commission buck mckeown argues that the white house should reconsider. he says, quote, it seems premature to declare that we will not treat tsarnaev as an enemy combatant since we don't know about his affiliations. clearly american citizens must be tried to civilian court, but the same citizen viciously attacked his countrymen, should be exploited for his intelligence value before any trial begins. that will be a debate that rages on for some time on this issue. we'll talk more later in the show with former new york city mayor rudy giuliani. bill: looking forward to that coming up here. meanwhile the feds want to talk to the widow of the suspect, tamerlan. she is mother of 3-year-old daughter between the two. the her lawyer said talks are underway with the feds how to proceed with that. he revealed on the last day tamerlan was home when his wife left for work. martha: well the officers who capturedded dzhokh
combatant or enemy belligerent for purpose of evidence gathering. >> under the law of war there's no right to legal counsel when you're being questioned for national security purposes. so i hope the obama administration will allow that exception and they have a very bad track record here. >> the white house telling reporters it would try tsarnaev in federal court and no other options were considered. >> this is matter decide ode by the attend of yates and the attorney general. the whole national security team supports this decision. >> to bring it down for you, the confusion comes over the venue. there is no way under the military commissions act to try an american citizen at the military courts in guantanamo bay, but if a sed threshold of evidence was met, if there was evidence that the brothers were directed by a foreign terrorist organization that would call for enemy combatant status. >> we have been talking about the trip to russian that the older suspect took. it's my understanding you learn more about the trip. >> fox news was told that russia's equivalent othe fbi isn't a letter to
be communicating to law enforcement officials. and there are new questions about whether the fbi dropped the ball after being warned by the russians in 2011 about cz tsarnaev's older brother, tamer ly tamerlan. nick paton walsh is in dagestan, and we have joe johns in washington, but we began with pamela brown with the latest on the investigation. >>> after a week of terror, chaos and heartache, the city of boston is still recovering. there are signs that life is starting to return back to normal here. there is a sense of relief after the arrest of the suspect, 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev. now the focus is on what charges he will face and when. >> reporter: one week after two deadly bombings exploded in downtown boston killing three and injuring 183 people, the only surviving suspect remains in serious condition. as federal prosecutors prepare to bring charges against him, law enforcement sources say dzhokhar tsarnaev is unable to talk after a gunshot wound to the neck. exactly when he suffered this injury is still unknown. >> this is a complex investigation. and it's hard to say exactly how he
. evidence was taken from that apartment. we saw law enforcement agents leaving with bags, gym bags and trash bags but the important thing to point out, robert -- and it was just made clear by boston police commissioner davis that there are no -- there's nobody in custody. there's no suspects right now who the fbi has. so, this is -- remains a wide open investigation. you heard the pleas for photographs and videos of the public. that's pretty telling in and of itself that the investigators still need more evidence. i did talk a little while ago to a former top federal bomb expert who had some pretty interesting things to say about where this is going. this was a very powerful blast. two bombs went off very quickly within ten seconds and that suggests that there could have been more than one perpetrator here. >> michael, reporting on the scene and chris jansing, my thanks to both of you and bringing in now on the telephone is former massachusetts congressman barney frank. sir, it's good to have you with us this morning. i want to get you first, though, where were you when you first heard about
the center of the investigation, where all of the different law enforcement agencies are gathering. that's where the medical tent was and is now turned into the headquarters as it were of the investigation. right next to me you can also see that as the marathoners have left, the international media and national media moved in. these folks from fuji television in japan. also folks here from german television, i have also spoken to folks from latin american television. reporter from colombia. obviously this has become a national/international event. and i also did get a chance earlier this evening off to talk to folks who have the vantage point of being right there, right in front of the blast scene by the finish line. let's hear what they had to say. >> suddenly this big explosion took place in front of me. and then i saw this cloud, big cloud, with smoke. and my first instinct was to run across the street and start helping out the people. >> your sleeve there is that blood on your sleeve? >> my pants. my clothes. >> show me the flag. >> that was the flag i was holding the whole type. thi
. the hospitals and law enforcement both reporting that there were ball bearings inside this bomb. not some of the other projectiles like nails that you might find in other improvised explosive devices, particularly like those you see in afghanistan. what can the kind of bomb used yesterday tell you about who may have been behind this? >> as a general matter, willie, the type of bomb, the explosives, was this gun powder? was it some higher quality explosive like petn, was it hydrogen peroxide? that will give a load about the type of organizations behind this. the fact there were ball bearings in this is it clearly tells you that whoever did this was intending to maim and kill. this wasn't an attempt to just, you know, do some damage and scare some people. this was someone or a group trying to kill people. you know, beyond that, i think it's really dangerous to say ball bearings suggest domestic or international. the fact is whether it's al qaeda or domestic terrorist groups or hezbollah, all of these groups have used different sorts of motus operenda. it will be a different lead for investi
you spend the day talking to your federal law enforcement sources across the country. >> we are hearing there was no active specific target in california that is receiving special attention but everyone stresses that all agencies remain on high alert status. one of the early keys is the fact that they did recover at least one device that did not detonate. that is key because they are skilled at reverse engineering these devices. we are told the sophistication will help determine the potential suspect or suspects. you can bet they are combing through every piece of video and video cameras in that area. federal agents are currently running down leads internationally and domestically and two sources said today is also tax day. we also confirmed there is no individual or individuals from the bay area currently being investigated for any connection to the boston bombing. and finally two sources say on attacks like this it is not uncommon to have what is called a spike in monitored chatter and communications. both sources said according to federal agents the federal agents did not
. we couldn't find my mother-in-law. >> is she okay? >> she's okay. she feels really guilty that she put us through this which is a crazy reaction. don't feel guilty. >> did you locate your wife? >> i did. it's crazy to think she was a few blocks down. on a day that normally is nothing but positive and joyous something positive could occur. >> you ran the race. you were on your way back to the finish line area to plemeet up h a friend. >> i was. i continued to walk and picked up my water bottle and i decided to go back toward the finish to find my friend who was a couple of minutes behind me. i got within a block and then i saw an explosion of white smoke and the loudest noise i've ever heard in my life. even though i was almost a block away the concussion from that was just stunning. it's disorienting. >> did you know it was a bomb or maybe something accidentally? >> no. it was louder than a cannon or anything. after the second blast it was pretty clear. >> did anything seem suspicious. >> no. >> they weren't even letting a pregnant person through. i just wanted to get through. ther
law enforcement all appealing to the public, asking for any amateur video and photographic evidence that can aid in what now has become a massive investigation. >> we are in the process of securing and processing the most complex crime scene that we've dealt with in the history of our department. we are doing that under the direction of the fbi and in partnership with the atf. jenna: not insignificant that he says that the most complex investigation in their department's history. despite a variety of different reports that you've all heard over the last 24, nearly 24 hours, the commissioner is making it very clear that right now no one is in custody in connection with these attacks. >> we still do not know who did this or why, and people shouldn't skwrupl top conclusions before -- jump to conclusions before we have all the facts you about. make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this. and we will find out who did this. we'll find out why they did this. any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice. jon: president obama on the air just
is in custody. >> megyn: bill hemmer, thank you, friend. see you soon. law enforcement now pouring over images from the scene and you heard bill how they're asking anyone who was there to send them pictures. what you're about to see a one example of what authorities are looking at. you will he see a man cross the finish line and kiss his children and then you'll hear the first explosion and 12 seconds or so later you will hear the second blast. listen here. >> great job!. [explosion] >> we now know that three people were killed and just under 200 people were injured in those moments. the authorities will also be looking at this video where moments after the explosion, look, you see two large pieces more than two, but those two we highlighted for you, metal flying, we've spot-shadowed them here and pieces of evidence that they'll use to determine who may be behind the terrible event. coming up later in the show we're going through the video with one of the world's foremost explosives experts who has worked on nearly every major terror investigation in recent memory, including the 1983 bombing
wish to do us harm are not eligible for benefits under the immigration laws including this new bill before us? host: we should point out that was before it dzhokhar tsarnaev was captured. he is under heavy guard protection, but one of the issues is whether or not he will be given his miranda rights. is he a u.s. citizen and under the constitution considered innocent until proven guilty, or is he an enemy combat? guest: you have people from the aclu and other supporters of civil liberties saying you have cases where -- you have the same two senators, john mccain and lindsey graham, who said this person is a terrorist and should not have miranda rights. it seems the obama administration is going to be straddling the middle ground, as they did with the so-called underwear bomber from a few years ago. host: "national journal" reporting the headline, "pete williams' reporting philosophy d y was g boon sighttory r guest: i would have to say that pete williams is the best i have ever come across, so measured and sofer. is amazing he was able to be showcased the way he was. this was a comp
found two unexploded bombs. this morning a senior law enforcement official says there were no unexploded devices, just the two that went off. several officials say the bombs that went off included shrapnels to multiply the injuries, bebes and ball bearings. investigators are investigating video to see if they can see individuals placing the packages. there is a video from the back carrying two backpacks but it's too soon to know whether that had anything to do with the attack. authorities say there is no suspect in custody but they did talk last night to a 20-year-old saudi man here on a currently active student visa. he had burns and questioned for hours and it's his home that was searched in the boston suburb of revere. they carried away some materials for examination but one official said it's too certain to know one or the other about him, that he might have been an innocent bystander. >> let's get to michael lighter, nbc news terrorism expert. good morning to you. the key question everyone is waking up with is what is your gut? does this bear the hallmarks of some domestic terrorism
